I made these goodies for William's preschool snack. Trust me, they taste as good as they are cute! Here's a bonus recipe for you:
1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
Bring the sugar and syrup to a boil while stirring constantly. Take it off the heat and add
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups peanut butter (I used almond butter due to allergies at William's school)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Stir until all melted together then add in about 5-6 cups of chow mein noodles.
Form into nest shapes on a Silpat or waxed paper. Then add 3 egg shaped candies to each one. I used Cadbury's Robin Eggs but M&M's will work too. Let them cool completely then devour these sweet and salty treats! You'll probably need a big glass of milk to go with them. Yum! Here's to you, Spring!
